An obituary on Milo C. Anderson, a retired linotype operator, carried in yesterday's editions of The Washington Post, failed to report that he had worked at the Central Intelligence Agency from 1950 until retiring in 1976.

Milo C. Anderson, 63, a retired linotype operator for the Government Printing Office who was active in veterans organizations, died Saturday at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore following cancer surgery.

Born in Redfield, S.D., Mr. Anderson learned the printing trade at his father's newspaper in Tulare, S.D. in 1935, he came here and joined the GPO.Except for four years of military service as a Navy petty officer during World War II, he remained with the GPO until his retirement in 1976.

Mr. Anderson lived in Annandale. He was a past commander of GPO Post 33 of the American Legion and a member of the Arlington chapter of the Catholic War Veterans.

He was a fourth-degree member of the Commodore John Barry Assembly of the Knights of Columbus, a member of Fairfax Council 4522 of the Knights of Columbus, the Fairfax Elks and Columbia Typographical Union No. 101.

His wife, Julia A., preceded him in death.

Survivors include three sons, Michael C., of San Francisco, Richard J., of Los Angeles, and Stephen A., of Annandale, and two grandchildren.

The family suggets that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions of KOVAR, Knights of Virginia Assisting the Retarded, 6729 Little River Turnpike, Annandale, 22003.
